I have been in a bit of a slump for quite some time. A job loss threw me for a loop, but in the long run I think it may have been a good thing. It was an office job with decent pay, but a miserable working atmosphere. I have since found a wonderful part time job, but the pay is not so wonderful. I love being home and I especially love having time to be creative. I have been moodling the idea of my own Etsy shop for quite some time so I could possibly earn some extra income doing something I love. My own happy little cottage industry! I have been quilting and sewing in order to stock my shop and I have loved every minute! I am hoping to open my "doors" within the next few weeks.
So back to the charm packs. I made a baby quilt and a sweet matching quilted pillow. The vintage linens are combined with crisp modern white. This reminds me of something that should be hanging on a clothes line out in the country. I am hoping it will soon be in a cute little one's nursery.
Then I bought some of the Sugar Creek fabric by Denyse Schmidt.
I loved playing with this fabric. It is adorable. I cut it into 5" squares, 2 1/2" squares and 3" strips, and the patterns stand up to any size.
